Helps to enjoy sex more and longer. Perfect for guys like me who are getting a little older, but still want to perform like a 20-year-old. 😁👊

I got Steven-Johnson syndrome as a side effect. Felt like I was looking through the eyes of someone else. Dissociation of body and mind, as in a nightmare.

After first trying a lighter medicine against heartburn my doctor prescribed Omeprazol 40mg. After two days, all my problems were under control. I’m very satisfied and will keep on using it.

Three hours after taking this drug I woke up in a total panic. Sitting on the couch for a while I could recall what it was all about. Something on my to do list had apparently turned into a gigantic nightmare in very clear and scary detail. Frightening.

I started on this drug 20 years ago, when I couldn’t do anything anymore, no walking, no sitting, nothing. Started with 25mg and am now taking 75mg a day. Some days I can still get away with just 25mg. I can function normally and just do my thing.

Given this for chest fibrillations. Works by restricting heart beat frequency and does it well, too. Had normal heart rate for two days after cardioversion but then I reverted bad to the chest fibrillations.

Initially I had metoprolol followed by cardioversion. It was successful, but after two days I reverted back to permanent chest fibrillation. As a result I was switched to Solatol because the heart rate wasn't too high and Solatol works more on rhythm. Had another cardioversion and this time it seems to have worked better. Heart rate is now somewhat on the low side (41 at r[read more...]est), but I feel great. No problems with side effects. I need to run hard to get it up higher and I'm quite curious to see if I can actually get it high enough for exercise. but for the time being i'm quite satisfied.

Given simvastatin first of all but it gave me stomach pains and made me really nauseous as well as lightheaded and muscle pains in my arms and lower back. The pravastatin makes me really nauseous and lightheaded and gives me a bit of bother with my lower back.
